Brain wondering on a nx4.. or the synergy N5C

So contemplating dropping in a os36 or just saw this

What problem are you having with the T10?

Break it in gently and it's a beautiful engine. Twice the flight time of the OS37...

you need the 50 kit or the "50 conversion kit parts" to fit the os-50.

but that t10 does seem nice, long flight times, cheaper fuel.

I have both, N5C and nx4 on os50sx-h.

My flying style with both is just mild 3d.

But I'm actually preferring the NX4 because of the size, for me it's less intimidating.

My N5C motor got too lean a few weeks ago because the muffler pipe got loose. I'm afraid I might have damaged it a little. So I've been reluctant to get it going for too.

The biggest difference for me is the size and power to weight ratio. Otherwise both fly fantastic.

Also contemplating an NX4 (.50 size kit)

I have zero experience with Gaui, and generally don't like the look of them however I think the nx4 looks pretty Rad.

I have a spare ys60 in the box, and a set of rjx mini servos (hoping they will fit)

The plan is to stretch it to a 500 size. I love nitro and think it will be a powerhouse swinging 500mm blades. It's either this or or a Synergy 516.

Hi, The YS engine will make it insane, with 500mm blades. might not get a lot of time on a tank, but it will rip.

I really like the T10 engine. It does not lack for power much. Certainly not comparable to a 50-size, but likely a match for the OS 37.

The complete engine is OoS. Spares are still available.

I believe it is the same as the GO 56 engine (haven't researched it thoroughly though).

Best to post Wanted ads. I picked one up NIB recently.

Default Gaui NX4 and Gas

I fly the Gaui NX4 and the T-10 gas engine. It has all the power I can handle and love those 15 minutes plus flight times on unleaded. LOL

The break in is a little bit of a pain but I was always able to find something to do in the garage while it idled out those tanks. I figured it was our bonding time.

It was not hard to tune and runs nice. Easy to start too. Noting too fancy from me but hey she flies a long time and easy for a new pilot like me to get running.
